I didn't know It's a Small World was down for refurb! Henry didn't get to ride last trip, and he won't this time either, that stinks! Good thing he doesn't remember it from previous trips, so he won't know what he's missing.

I gotta get caught up on your Surprise trip!

How's the debt? We have a bit on our CC now from moving expenses, but with Joe's new job (and a nice bonus in Feb.) we should have no problem paying it off and then paying the DVC off!

Hey Brook! So Happy to see you back on the DIS!

I have really been loving following along on your blog about your move! The Brooklyn Bridge looks amazing and old!!

So you didn't sell your DVC after all?!?! When are you guys planning on going back?

Yeah, I am hoping Aaron doesn't remember it from previous trips either, but who am I kidding...when anyone mentions Walt Disney World the next thing out of his mouth is it's a small world!

My debt is done....well not really, but the main chunk of debt is gone. We have about 2 thousand on a 5% interest until it is paid off and the balance on our DVC and of course my student loan debt, but that interest is nothing! Almost there! Been plugging away at couponing too, saving about a grand a month off retail price with coupons and sales. I noticed that you have a CVS within walking distance! Extra Care Bucks!

Yeah you will have no problem paying if off! I love your place, can't wait to see more pics of it! All your pictures are making me really want to visit NY again! I haven't been since I was 4 but I remember it fondly and the PIZZA!

We do have a CVS very close - matter of a fact I was JUST there. I haven't gotten into the couponing yet for CVS, but I plan to. Most of the stores around here don't accept internet printables - but I think CVS does. So far I've just been watching the sales and taking advantage of those, I have to figure out what newspapers have the coupons too!

Congratulations on getting rid of most all your debt! That is fantastic! I bet it feels great too. We have a bit on our credit cards now due to the move, my student loan and DVC left. Hopefully it will all be gone within a year or two....then we can buy more points.

You are further along in your plans for your October trip than I for my September. Have you ever eaten at Mama Melrose? This one was on our list one time, but got canceled last minute because we were sick - it made the list again for September and I haven't looked much into the reviews lately!

I checked out your blog - you are doing awesome! The CVS here acts like they have never seen a coupon. Stacking? FORGET ABOUT IT! They get so confused! I have pretty much given up couponing and just shop the sales. A bit annoying, but there are some excellent deals here - especially on produce - so it balances out. I've subscribed to Amazon's monthly delivery for most of our toiletries, there are some great deals there!

We are leaving our plans for October very loose too! We are just going to hang and go where we feel like...very few ADR's very different trip...and it will be the 1st time we will be there just the 3 of us!!
I ate at Mama Melrose a long, long time ago...when I was in the 7th grade. I remember their ummy pizza...but who knows if it has changed.

Thanks! I feel like I am doing awesome....but the pocketbook doesn't show it yet...too many trips coming up that need to be paid for...still have to pay off our cruise balance, and pay for the rental car and a few hotel stays. That is weird about your CVS...annoying! That is great that you have good deals on produce! Oohh..I recently checked out that monthly delivery from Amazon...really neat!

But just think - if you weren't doing awesome, you wouldn't be able to go on all these trips!

I don't think I remember/didn't realize that your October trip was just you three! Very cool! And great idea about keeping it loose with a little one. It's a much more magical time if you let them "lead" and have time to stop and play with the fountains and ducks!

I laughed at your comment about Jason and his chicken nuggets. I think I have YET to try a Disney chicken nugget, but I do read a lot about them, so at some point I guess I'm gonna have to try them!

Yes, that is very true! I wanna start saving for a house soon though!

Yep the October trip is just us three! I am really excited about it, but the funny thing is Jaime is also going in October and she is going the exact dates we are going and we just happened to plan it like that.

Yes, it is almost as bad as you and the corn dog nuggets, although he has not gotten his photo taken by a photopass photographer with them yet .

You are going to get to do It's A Small World!!!! YAYYYYYYYYYY! I'm so excited for Aaron! I so wish it were open this trip for Henry. Thankfully we WILL be back before he outgrows it.

What is Old Town? I thought that was in the Chicago area.

Looks like a really great trip, Disney, family, the beach and more Disney. Ahhhh....

I love that PP pic of you two kissing Aaron. If I think of that, I'm stealing that idea!
